If you smile at me I will understand,
cos that is something everybody everywhere does in the same language.
Wooden ships on the water, very free and easy
Easy, you know the way it's supposed to be
Silver people on the shoreline, let us be
Talkin' 'bout very free and easy
(Wooden Ships - Crosby Stills & Nash)
Definitive lyrics from CSN from one of my favourite albums; love the "smile" reference, so true and pertinent for TE, as sometimes a smiley critique is all that crosses the language barrier, other than the appreciation of the image of course.
Wooden Ships on the River Arun in Littlehampton, West Sussex, England.

You are my neighbour today. This is an excellently composed photo in superb light and outstanding details. The clean reflections are fabulous.
Wish you a very nice weekend.

This is a nice picture, with your usual gorgeous colors, a perfect sharpness. The reflection, the mirror effect, works well.
I also like the yellow grass in the lower left part of the picture.

A very attractive, well composed image. The old boat is a terrific subject in this superb light. The reflections stand out nicely in the calm water and beckon to be interpreted.

Nice one from the banks of the river. Very good composition with the space you allowed for the river, which has wonderful reflections of the sky and from the shore. Good clarity, colours and light as usual. Thanks for sharing.

I am just visiting UK and can understand how the images of boats and bays can be such an important part of your gallery. They are absolutely beautiful and to just walk pass them is almost impossible. And if one is blessed with good light it is an opportunity no photographer can miss. This one placed against white clouds and with some pretty houses in the background is very picturesque too. The colors warmed up by the light are lovely.
Thanks for sharing

solito splendido soggetto e soliti impeccabili nitidezza e colori.
A mio parere, in questa foto ci sarebbe stato bene anche un formato quadrato che avrebbe concentrato ancor più l'attenzione sul soggetto.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

this is a very pretty photo. I like the blue sky and it reflection o the water. The woden structure including the boat are very attractive too. I like the white/red building in the background showing this is not a desert place.

Very nice photo and a very nice note. Beautiful shot with perfect details, beautiful light and reflections

Belle prise de vue de ce vieux bateau avec beaucoup de reflets dans l'eau. C'est magnifique. Bonne utilisation des brins d'herbe en avant plan. Photo bien réussie. Salutations.

Cette belle et lumineuse photo de ce bateau sur cale vaut bien son pesant de "sourires verts"!

well chosen title for this lovely picture. You are lucky guy, living near the sea you can find such picturesque places with old ships. marvelous colours, lights and composition. The reflection is perfect in the bsmooth water. I send you many smiles :)
macjake (69765) 2014-01-26 1:16
love these ships.
not sure which one is better, the small skinny blue one or the larger white one...both have their merrits.
both hulls have chipping paint which gives the subject that all important rustic look we all love.
and i bet the two boats could tell stories :)
Personally, I'd like to see a little of the skyline removed. It would get rid of the dead space in the sky. and make it a more 1/3 2/3 style compo.
But like I said thats just a personal preference, it doesn't at all take away from the skill set of the photograph - which is the great exposure, colors, sharpness and subjects/reflections.
nice work as always.

Thanks for so interesting and positive post, the colors are superb, especial some prevalent of the blue !
I really like this view, amazing reflection, yes this boat reminds me a cartoon smiling face with the small black eye.
Best wishes from Russia!

Excellent choice of angle to shoot the wooden ship in sweet colors.The reflection in waters and the blue sky above makes this an awesome looking scenery.Perfect lighting and sharpness.Very well done,TFS.

Hello Brian - I am singing along as I read your notes and look at the accompanying image and I love your little wooden ship! As always a beautifully managed shot and I think the small spray of grass in the corner is a brilliant 'Brian' touch. Warm regards Rosemary

Hello Brian ,
A calm and beautiful winter sunny day in England ! A superb composition with pleasant colors and fine reflections . The golden thick grass in the corner are a nice bonus .

Bel effet de miroir, le cadrage et le format avec l'inclusion des herbes dans le coin , bonne lumière et couleurs
krzychu30 (15512) 2014-01-27 23:49
old boats are so magnificent subject for photos.
I like your presentation of this old "beauty"!
The blue sky and reflections in the water create here very expressive and picturesque effect.
Have a nice day

Very beautiful, the boat and the shot! The light, the colours, the symmetry... everything seems perfect here! I like the plants in foreground also.
